“And in fact the only way I can deal with this eerie situation at all is to make a conscious decision that I have already lived and finished the life I planned to live — and everything from now on will be A New Life, a different thing, a gig that ends tonight and starts tomorrow morning.” 
― Hunter S. Thompson

Live is full of weird situations. Episodes we just can’t wrap our heads around.

Hunter S. Thompson calls his an ‘eerie situation’ and I think that’s as good a name for them as any. Those moments when your life starts to feel like a story — like you’ve some how landed in a movie.

There are moments when something you thought would last forever ends or you find yourself face-to-face with someone else’s insanity or you get news that shakes you to your foundation. In those moments the space between who you think you are and who you really are becomes so transparent and it’s impossible to hide from yourself.
